Syllabus

We have checked the performance of our laptop using Zoom in the President's lounge of the Whitby Club, and we conclude that the Wifi signal is not strong / fast enough for good Zoom performance. Together with the current Omicron Covid virus spreading so quickly, we have decided not to return to face to face meetings in January. So we will continue with Zoom meetings for the remainder of the season (to the end of April 2022).
As normal, meetings will be on Monday evenings starting at 7:30pm. (Updated 15th Jan 2022).
